E.May’s songs pull listeners into the story, her performance skills and stage presence demand attention, and backstage she’s smart and easy to work with. Keep an eye on E.May: she’s going somewhere” – John Hayes, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“E. May revels in the unexpected, living and creating with a sense of both whimsy and dedication that fuels the charming contradictions of her life. [Her songs are] driven by the gentle pluck of acoustic guitar and arresting voice, which is deep and passionate. The message is prayer-like in its rhythmic and lyrical repetition, a message calling us to appreciate the cyclical nature of life itself.” – Elmore Magazine
